In today's rapidly changing technological world, it is increasingly important that web and desktop applications be accessible to everyone, including those of us with special needs. However, the legal requirements for accessibility are often convoluted and diffucult to understand, making it impossible for most developers to comply with the laws. In the first book on the market to address the topic, Author John Paul Mueller leads you through the maze of Section 508—the congressional law ensuring that all Americans have access to information technology—and offers comprehensive guidance on how to quickly and easily update your applications to conform to Section 508 requirements. To begin, Mueller outlines the Section 508 requirements that are relevant to web and desktop application developers, and explains the laws in language you can understand. Using extensive and varied program examples, Mueller continues on to teach you to write web and desktop applications that not only conform to Section 508 standards, but look forward to ensure long-term universal accessibility for all types of computer users. Specific topics include writing accessible web applications and desktop applications using Visual Basic .NET and Visual C# .NET, developing special application capabilities, using Microsoft and other third-party tools to develop accessible features, developing accessible scripting solutions, and more. The book even includes a directory of helpful organizations, agencies, and resources to help you with any further accessibility concerns you may have.
More than a collection of ASP.NET 2.0 language tips, this book helps you get to grips with ASP.NET 2.0. Moving to .NET 2.0 means that developers must understand the new coding techniques and standards (such as Master Pages and Generics) introduced with ASP.NET 2.0. They must also be aware of rising ancillary technologies such as Ajax and "Atlas" which may soon become intrinsically linked to ASP.NET development. The rise of alternative browsers, like Firefox, means that developers who want their web applications to be viewed as intended by their customers must master XHTML/CSS compliance.
* Edit standard XML files with all the tools of Word and Excel (like formulas and the spell checker) * Take existing Word or Excel documents, transform all or part of them into XML, and "plug" them into business processes. * Mine the data in an Office document, using custom macros or applications—on any platform. * Create rich Word or Excel documents programmatically, without even needing to have Office installed. * Create smart documents that have built-in user guidance and validation rules to prevent errors.

The .NET Framework offers new, more effective ways to secure your Web and LAN-based applications. .NET Development Security Solutions uses detailed, code-intensive examples—lots of them—to teach you the right techniques for most scenarios you're likely to encounter. This is not an introduction to security; it's an advanced cookbook that shows experienced programmers how to meet tough security challenges: Recognize and avoid dangerous traps—including holes in .NET Work fluently with both role-based and code access security Maximize the security advantages of policies and code groups Promote security using Active Directory Secure data with .NET cryptographic techniques Meet the toughest LAN security requirements Tackle special security issues associated with Web and wireless applications Implement Win32 API security in managed applications Uniting this instruction is a coherent, cohesive mindset that will help you take the human factor into account at every step. You'll become technically proficient with all the tools at your disposal—and, at the same time, you'll learn to make your solutions more powerful by crafting them in ways that dovetail with users' needs—and foibles—and anticipate cracker exploits.
The Student's Essential Guide to .NET provides a clear and simple overview of Microsoft's .NET technologies. It is aimed at second and third year undergraduate students and postgraduate students on Computing or Computer Science courses who are required to look at a modern operating system, (Microsoft Windows 9x, Nt 2000 or XP) and to design and code simple or even not so simple examples. The approach is based upon the student's learning the technology of .NET through examples using the supported languages C#, VB and C++. The examples are based on fun, familiar games, and students are encouraged to review reference material to refine their skills on key aspects of the architecture. Review questions and worked examples enhance the learning process and the material is supported by the author's website, which contains extensive ancillary material. * Student-focused treatment with many examples and exercises, together with solutions * Integrates the use of .NET with the supported languages C#, VB and C++ * Authors supporting website contains solutions, source code and other extras
Let's Talk 2, Second Edition, is for students at the intermediate level.
